I've known Alanna for over 20 years and drawing and painting has always been a part of her life. She's a practising artist, so understands how to bring a project to fruition and ready it for the public to see. She's also a very patient and relaxed teacher, so if you're a beginner you'll find her presence reassuring. She's an expert at what she does so she'll have a lot to teach you!

Alanna showed great patience and open-mindedness in teaching Charlotte techniques and encouraging her confidence. Her relaxed attitude and technical expertise was exactly what we were looking for in a tutor and Charlotte really enjoys her classes.
